DCASE Studio Artist and Curatorial Residency / by Adebukola Bodunrin

I'm excited to announce that I'll be an artist in residence for the inaugural year of Chicago Cultural's Center's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) residency program.

The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) and The Joyce Foundation are pleased to announce the inaugural recipients of the 2014-2015 DCASE Studio Artist and Curatorial Residency Awards. Following a competitive review of over 200 qualified applicants, a panel of esteemed jurors selected six Studio Artists in Residence and two Curatorial Fellows. Each recipient will be awarded a stipend to develop their proposed creative project and engage with the public. Additionally, the Artists in Residence will be provided with three months of studio space, either private or public, at the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington Street, where they will engage visitors in public programs and talks to be announced. These awards are provided through a generous grant of $50,000 from The Joyce Foundation to support underrepresented artists and curators who demonstrate a strong level of commitment to diversity and community and whose work shows promise or is on the brink of advancement.
